Another entry for the Famous Ladies, Star Trek Editionseries!
Guinan, portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg, is a mysterious bartender who runs Ten Forward, the lounge aboard the USS Enterprise-D. Guinan is an El-Aurian, a long-lived race of “listeners” who were scattered by the Borg. Q, however, once suggested that there was far more to her than could be imagined. Guinan and Picard shared a long-time relationship, which, according to Guinan, went “beyond friendship and beyond family.” She often advised Picard and the senior staff in times of dilemma.
Whoopi Goldberg is an American actress, comedian, author, and television host. She has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for her work in television and is one of the few entertainers who have won an Emmy Award, a Grammy Award, an Oscar, and a Tony Award. She was the second black woman in the history of the Academy Awards to win an acting Oscar. Goldberg got the role of Guinan after she expressed interest to the producers, being a fan of Star Trek: The Original Series – mostly due to Nichelle Nichols, one of the first black women to be regularly featured in an American television series. Goldberg hoped to play the new ship’s doctor after Gates McFadden was fired, but the producers did not see her as suitable for the role and instead rewrote the role of Enterprise’s bartender for her.

YOU'RE THE ONE WITH THE REDESIGNED STAR TREK ALIENS OMG I LOVE THEM ALL THEY ARE PERFECT
Haha thank you! I really love drawing them all. :D
I’m not the only one who does Trek alien redesigns though! (there’s a possibility I may be the only person whose blog is solely dedicated to it, but I’m definitely not the only person to make them!) Here’s some personal recs for other redesigns:
@laurelhach - makes fuckin’ awesome redesigns that get really really alien-y! Here’s the redesign tag. My redesigns are very animal-inspired, with only a few more out-there aliens (Betazoids, Remans, and that’s kindddaaa it), so absolutely check out @laurelhach for rad art and aliens that are very alien! El-Aurians are my favourite, like holy shit check those out.
NOT REDESIGNS BUT I can’t make a rec post without reccing @ds9shameblog whose awesome skill in gesture and cartooning is a big source of inspiration. I aspire to be able to bring across as much energy! Something about redesigning makes it very easy to end up with static-looking aliens, because the more inhuman something is, the more difficult it is to give it expression - @ds9shameblog NAILS IT. Check out the incredible cartooning over on their main too.
So there’s lots of redesigns to have a look at! :D There will definitely be more, but this is who I know of.
Thank you for the message, I hope I can continue to make enjoyable goofy alien pictures! :DDD

Guys, it’s really important to me that you all get to experience Bashir’s racquetball outfit…. situation.
This episode also featured Prince Humperdinck [!] as an El-Aurian, which made me blurt “oh! Like the guy who made the Nexus. And Guinan,” without even thinking. What’s the word for when you feel sort of proud and super ashamed at once?

I’m going to fangirl under a cut since I am aware i’m the only one of a small minority who cares about Five headcanons/relationships and why I made her a Borg: Sometimes I just need to make w13: tng things >.>
